Would a Hikvision / Pelco Deal Make Sense?

Author: John Honovich, Published on Feb 05, 2013

A persistent industry rumor says Hikvision and Pelco are in talks to do a merger / acquisition. Who knows the truth. Even if there are some talks, that does not mean anything will come of it.

In this note, we examine if it would make sense. It might happen, it might not but if it did, would it be a good deal and for whom?
